"Voter, Are You ID Ready?"
Sheri Iachetta, Registrar, Charlottesville
Jake Washburne, Registrar, Albemarle County
Joyce Pace, Registrar, Fluvanna County
Tuesday, September 2
Read about our meeting in The Daily Progress.Our Community Dialogue meeting on Tuesday, September 2, at noon (Member/Guest "Meet and Greet" at 11:30 am) will launch the 2014 Election season in our area.
Local registrars, Sheri Iachetta (City of Charlottesville), Jake Washburne (Albemarle County), and Joyce Pace (Fluvanna County), will present the latest information on the new photo ID law that went into effect July 1, 2014. They will explain how the law is being interpreted by the State Board of Elections [renamed Department of Elections as of July 1] and what it means for you the voter when you go to the polls to vote this November.
Further, they will present their plans for National Voter Registration Day on September 23, 2014. Ms. Iachetta has secured the Charlottesville Mall Pavilion for the day to do a big promotion. She expects to have a dozen or so laptops available for people to register online, as well as cameras to take photos for voters who don't have valid ID. There will be assistance in filling out absentee ballot applications, and just making people aware of the ballot information and the constitutional amendment on the ballot.
So join us in supporting our local registrars in our mission to educate and inform voters!
